The National Agency for Science and Engineering Infrastructure (NASENI) on Friday, June 11, stated that the country is set to start the local assembly of helicopters.

Chairman of NASENI, Prof. Mohammed Haruna disclosed this after a meeting with the President, Muhammadu Buhari at the State House in Abuja.

Prof. Haruna stated that a lot of progress has been recorded as all components required have arrived from Belgium and training has begun in full for pilot, engineers and technicians.

The agency also presented an irrigation mechanism that could fast track agriculture production in the country to the President.

According to Prof. Haruna, the innovation, which is solar-powered, is a mobile equipment that would guarantee three farming seasons every year.

NASENI is a federal government agency established in 1992.

The agency has a vision to “create an enabling knowledge-driven environment for local mass-production of standard parts, goods and services required for the Nation’s Technology Advancement.”
